Our Annual Gigantic, Fun, Amazing Flex End-of-Year Potluck Celebration/Awards Ceremony/Grade 8 Grad Extravaganza is officially on Thursday, June 25th! We hope all Grade 7 and 8 students and parents can attend as it is a very meaningful and special day for Tanis and I as well as the kids. Please bring any kind of dish you want. Main courses are always safe bets, but we’ll also need drinks, desserts, and salads.
Place: The Flex Rooms (Room 20 and 21)
Feel free to email Tanis or I if you have any questions: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you all there!!
Hey everyone! Things are winding down here at the school, and we have the usual flurry of permission forms for end-of-year activities. Since Grade 8s are not going to camp, everyone is expected to participate in June activities June 24-26. Wednesday, June 24 is Fun Mountain (Cost $12.00). This is an all-day activity. On Thursday we are going to Assiniboine Park. The cost for this outing is only $2.00 (to cover the cost of buses). Friday is a choice activity (all activities are outlined on the blue forms that have been handed out to the kids).
We handed out the blue forms early last week and we have only received seven as of today. These forms are due TOMORROW (Friday). We have also not received several forms that give permission for students to go home after their morning exams. These are also due tomorrow.
Aside from these two permission forms, please keep an eye out for the Churchill Chronicle, which will be coming home tomorrow. Many of the above dates and info will be included in this newsletter. Keep checking this blog and Churchill’s website for any more information and updates. Feel free to contact Tanis or I via email.

P.S. Please keep in mind that we are planning our annual Flex End-of-Year Potluck for June 25th. This date is not written in stone yet. Hopefully it will be by tomorrow.
All Grade 8s have homework tonight! They must finish their 2007 practice exams for tomorrow. I’m giving 10 marks for this term for completing this homework assignment.
Hello parents and students!
It’s the last week of school before exams and we’re nowhere near winding down yet! Students should be doing a minimum of one hour of homework per night, especially the grade 8s. Speaking of the 8s, only two students actually completed the homework that I assigned over the weekend in Math. In fact, out of three homework checks I conducted this week in Grade 8 Math (worth marks), only a handful of students actually completed these very important assignments. The Math and Science exams will be extremely challenging even for students who have studied intensely. It is essential that students are completing their homework assignments.
The grade 8 English Exam continues tomorrow at 10:00 and Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. This is the writing section of the divisional exam.
Students must be studying for Science every day this week as we have our exam on Tuesday, June 17th.
